LOCATION INFORMATION: #
Cloth backgrounds and seamless paper are our two standard backgrounds; one or the other should be expected, although they are not guaranteed. On occasion, there might be furniture and other items available to decorate the set with. However, these items are exceptional and should NOT be expected.
Each session is limited to 4 photographers. Each photographer will get 30 minutes to be the "head photographer." This means they will set the lights and pose the model. Other photographers who are not acting as the head photographer may still photograph as long as they do not interfere with the head photographer. Once the lead photographer's 30 minutes are over, the lead photographer position will be transferred to another photographer within the same session. The order of photographers is determined about 5 minutes prior to the start of the session. If you want to have the model change or if you want to move sets, realize you are doing this on your 30 minutes; each session is strictly limited to 2 hours and has a hard stop time, even if the event starts late.
Our group uses daylight-balanced constant fluorescent lights. This allows everyone to photograph at the same time.
You may bring your own lights, as long as your modeling lights and other equipment do not interfere with the other photographers' ability and enjoyment of photographing the model.
Nearly all photographers are using didital, but a few still use film. Photographers at recent events have used everything from cell phone cameras to 8" x 10" field cameras; however, most photographers use DSLR's, usually with "C" sized or "Full Frame" sensors. We recommend lenses of f 2.8 or faster and lenses with a 35mm equivalent focal length of around 70 mm (around 50mm on a "C" sized sensor).
Note: you are responsible for your own equipment. Please ensure it is secured. If you leave your equipment at the shoot, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with the organizer to get the equipment back. If you leave your equipment at the studio during lunch hours, it is your responsibility of ensuring its safety.
This event is being run by Stan Goldstein. See samples of his work at: http://www.GoldsteinUSA.com/ The individual sessions & models may be organized and run by: Stan Goldstein, Michael Brennan, Nestor Rivera, Tam Nguyen, Ming Chin, or Glenn McGuire, others are also possible.
